Young Innovations consistently adheres to a three-pronged strategy for growth – acquire, enhance and improve, which provides the foundation for continuing success.


Young Innovations was founded around 1900 and was a pioneer of US manufactured dental products. In modern history, Young Innovations was built through the 1990’s and early 2000’s through a series of mergers and acquisitions in a variety of dental segments. Young went public in 1997 and traded on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the ticker YDNT for over 15 years. In 2013, Young was acquired by Linden Capital Partners, a healthcare-focused private equity investment firm. In 2017, Linden Capital sold a majority interest to The Jordan Company, LP (“TJC”). TJC is a leading investment firm with a long history of partnering with management teams to help them build their businesses through a combination of strategic investments to drive organic growth and acquisitions.

Young Innovations continues to build on its rich legacy of manufacturing and supplying high-quality products designed to improve the clinical experience for dental professionals and patients. We believe in creating smiles and creating possibilities, and will continue to make history doing so!
